News 3.15.2020 Opening weekend of Before We Burn Out has been bittersweet. While we still have plans to move forward with our run (for the time being), it still breaks my heart to see so many of my theatre colleagues cancelling or postponing shows. Anyone who has done any type of live performance will tell you that the amount of manpower going into these productions is both inspiring and herculean. Cancellations and postponements affect everyone involved, and while they are sometimes a necessary precaution, it's still a difficult decision to make. We will continue our run on Monday with our planned pay-what-you-can performance. The performance on Thursday, March 19th will be live streamed via Facebook. Stay tuned for more information. And take care of yourselves out there.
